Wichita, KS, July 29, 2011 --(PR.com)-- During the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Summer Market held in Salt Lake City, Aug. 4 – 7, INVISTA’s CORDURA® brand team will host a gear drive to benefit Gear to Grow.

Exhibitors are encouraged to participate by dropping off surplus samples and equipment to the Gear to Grow donation bin during show hours. Prior to the show, exhibitors can ship donations to the Salt Palace Convention Center, along with gear they plan to exhibit.

“We are honored to support Gear to Grow by serving a as the collection hub for the gear drive to help support the organization’s mission of encouraging individuals to participate in outdoor recreational activities,” said Cindy McNaull, global CORDURA® brand and marketing director. “By engaging with Gear to Grow and the cause to encourage outdoor recreation, the CORDURA® brand team is able to put gear in the hands of those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to be active in the outdoors. Everyone is durable at heart and deserves to have the opportunity to be adventurous.”
